Ah yes, but there is a balance. Everyone finds it.

Hi John,

I am so glad you still keep this book "open" ..

.. balance... is something I seemingly was never good at so I may be the exception. When I really liked something couldn't get enough. Now older I am just slowly forced to accept the need for it due to my limitations. 20 some years ago didn't matter it was pouring rain and I was only wearing a pair of jeans and t-shirt riding all day soaked. Now my knees remind me of it every morning. The truth is I will probably never change or find balance because I don't know how to seek it, or am not ready yet to find it. Maybe it will come to me and I'll let you know as if it were not for your writings I'd be allot further from it.

Best,
Vic
